Whitby: Mr Pigeon has been sacked

Whitby: Mr Pigeon has been sacked

Mike Whitby is a very popular member and local organiser of the British National Party (BNP). In the past he has stood as a “local” candidate for them in two different countries.

In 2012 he stood for the party in Liverpool’s Mayoral Election after renting a disused chicken shed to qualify as local. He was then arrested for electoral fraud.

That’s quite common in the BNP.

When the BNP’s troubles started some three months ago, Whitby was sounded out as a potential mediator. He was to be one of the organisers’ of tomorrow night’s meeting in St Helens where Nick Griffin is set to announce his “way forward” for the rest of the BNP.

As a result, Whitby was relieved of his duties by the party last night and his party email address used to send a notice to BNP members that the meeting has been cancelled.

In fact, every party email address is now under control of the party leadership and the contents of all emails are being scrutinised for signs of disloyalty.

Members of the BNP have been ringing our office for days now telling us the location of Griffin’s meeting. I bet they don’t know that Paul Telford is actually hosting an earlier meeting at which Griffin will choose his leadership team?

We do.
